    Bahai without Muhammad, Sufism without Islam

    Howdy! I recently had a previous event come to mind. I had met some Bahais and we were talking about religion. The thing that came up was that I didn't believe Muhammad was a prophet but that he was central to Bahai. We ended up talking for awhile never really got past the issue. So I was...

    Question(s) For Bahais

    I noticed that @Seeker of White Light identifies as Bahai, and I got a little curious. How does one become a Bahai, and what teaching is it based upon?

    Baha'i -- What have you done for me lately...or ever?

    I keep getting told that the Baha'i are all about equality and the oneness of humanity. I have poked through some of their history and have a hard time discerning how those principles manifests in reality. With regards to social equality and justice, what practical efforts and tangible support...

    What Jesus said! Jesus Himself? How, What and where?

    Muslims, Bahai's, Christians, Some Hindus, and even a few Jews, quote sayings of Jesus as if they are historical sayings of Jesus himself. Of course most Christians would definitely believe the New Testament has his sayings in some form or another. Some believe they are absolutely verbatim...

    Questions for knowledgeable Bahai / followers of Baha'u'llah

    No room for questions in heaven. How will you ask ? The above is a link to where this questioning started, but in order to prevent de-railing the thread, this thread has been created for anyone at all, especially Bahai people or anyone who deems themselves informed about Bahai or even just...

    Ascension of Baha'u'llah

    May 28th is the Baha'i Holy day to commemorate the passing of Baha'u'llah in 1892. It closed a 40 years period of Revelation. This is a short reflection of what that meant for humanity. Reflections on the Ascension of Baha’u’llah Regards Tony

    "Religion is One" in Bahai Faith

    Maybe it is a sign that I (luckily) have too much free-time, but this Bahai thing really bugs me. I've been musing on what it means that "Religion is One". I have a certain idea of what I think it could mean, but already, the Bahai interfaith practice didn't turn out as what I expected it to be...

    Was Bahaullah a "Bahai", please?

    Was Bahaullah a "Bahai", please? Bahaullah was sure not a "Bahai" as per the core book of Bahaullah named by him as "Kitab-i-Iqan". Jesus was not a "Christian", he was a Jew, he was "Baptized" posthumously as virtually being a follower of a new religion "Christianity" by Paul/Church and or the...

    Is humanity in need of more spiritual universalism?

    Considering that the human race has had a long history of denominational divisions and conflicts, should there perhaps be more spiritual paths with a more universalistic outlook on this planet? Would that bring more harmony among the people? And if so, what should such paths look like? Some...
